    That catalog has that too. I expect there were suppliers to wholesalers. Earlier, I have shown a picture of a GGF with a Parker double barrel. That catalog still has them in there, in several trim...

    That was exactly the presentation that this guy gave. He was using a serrated knife, and wanted to compare it to a straight bladed knife that my host had. I asked him to wait until I sharpened the...

    I used bacon grease once, in a pinch, and it worked better than you might think it would have.

    It's kind of a funny story, but too long to type out here, in detail. A knife salesman came by the...

    I did that for one of my compressors, to run nailguns, and it hasn't quit working yet. I have it set to come on at 105, and off at 125. That one did come with a 125 kick off point anyway, but it...

    There always seems to be a lot of questions about guides. Once you have one of these, and a saw that will tension it, the guides don't matter much. It not only cuts smoothly, but so fast that it...

    I thought about this when I bought some high flash point solvent for a parts washer today. No time to look at it any further yet, and haven't even opened the 5 gallon can. Kerosene works fine for...

    I was hoping it was just the picture. Something about the first picture made it look like the top was multiple edge joined boards, but then the figure matched across them. Gorgeous piece, and...

    Here's the only picture I can think of, that I have available right off, for a chimney cricket. The cricket itself has to be flashed. I typically don't even use caulking for any part of it. The...

    Those are nice, but you can't rent one for 200 bucks a day, and the delivery, and pickup fees will be even more than that.

    I got my 210 dollars worth out of the towable's rental cost, that day. I...

    There are towable man lifts that rent pretty cheap, these days. If he didn't do any better job than that on the chimney to start with, I wouldn't trust him to know how to fix it, and I wouldn't...

    I have always used primer. The thinned down OB soaks in some, so I always felt like it was worth the trouble. It's also easy to sand, if needed. Rub it once in each of two directions (back, and...
